Bike Fitting

The most advanced fit centre in the UK

A bike fit with us will be the best investment you’ll ever make in your cycling

Why might you need a bike fit?

  • Injury prevention: A poor position puts undue strain on joints and muscles. A saddle that’s too low can cause knee pain, yet one too high can cause hamstring problems. A correctly set up bike minimises the chances of developing an injury in the future.
  • Comfort: Theres nothing that changes cycling from a pleasure to a chore more than discomfort. Bars that are too wide can lead to shoulder & neck pain. Shoes that are too narrow can lead to foot numbness.
  • Speed: A saddle that is set too low can lead to reduced power output, while bars that are unnecessarily high leads to increase drag. Whether you’re an elite racer or a weekend warrior, everyone deserves to go as quickly as they can.

The Process:

Body Assessment: First we must understand your body, your injury history, your tightnesses your weaknesses. This will dictate the limits on the position that can be achieved.

Foot Assessment: All of the power produced to drive you forward has to go through your feet. To maximise this power transfer your cleat must be position under the correct part of your foot with the correct rotation and angle to minimise strain on the knees. The foot must also be correctly supported to minimise pronation. In cycling, you need your foot to be a solid lever rather than a foot.

3D Motion Capture and Position Adjustment: Now we work on refining the bike set up. 3D motion tracking allows us to quantify how you’re sat and moving on the bike. With this information we can adjust the saddle position and shape as well of the bars width and position to achieve the perfect position for your unique body requirements and goals.

Document Position: A digital record of the new position is recorded and a PDF report emailed to you.

Our Fitting Technology

STT Systems

We’ve partnered with STT Systems to offer our full real-time 3D optical motion capture on all our fits. This means that during your fit we can monitor both sides of your body at the same time in 3D to improve the quality of your final position. Combining this with the highest frame rate HD cameras recording at 100 frames per second (Retul captures 18 frames per second) we’re confident that our technology is the most advanced available in the bike fit world.

Bioracer Aero

Bioracer’s Aero virtual wind-tunnel system has been put to good use over the last year by the likes of Team Sky and Cervelo to help optimise riders Aerodynamics on the bike. Combining this with our motion capture analysis allows us to find the most aerodynamic position for you for any discipline.
